Miscellaneous Monday — June 11, 2007

For today’s Miscellaneous Monday, I’ll tell you 3 things that make me happy.

1. A Lindor truffle and a cup of black coffee.

2. Snuggling with my kids early in the morning.

3. Watching my husband play soccer with our children.

Of course, there are plenty more things that make me happy, but these are 3.

What about you? What makes you happy?

  1. Okay… last week I talked about Neil Diamond, violin playing and show tunes. I was checking my comments and my daughter read over my shoulder.

    “I can’t believe you wrote those things. You sound like a nerd!”

    Perhaps I can do better this week:

    1 – Pulling into the driveway and seeing my husband’s car.
    2 – Snuggling into a blanket and reading a book during a thunderstorm.
    3 – Seeing the light come on when a child learns something new.

  2. Patrick

    1) Watching a good movie with my wife.
    2) Reading a good book (with a cup of coffee) in a calm, clean area with the right amount of ambient light and some nice music.
    3) Wrestling with my kids on Friday nights (it’s a free-for-all with the all the kids against daddy).

  3. 1. The laughter of my children.
    2. a white mocha frappuccino light from Starbucks with iced lemon pound cake 🙂
    3. Having a relationship with Jesus.

    **I could name so many more but will just keep it to 3 today. 😉

  4. Jane

    1. Reading a Jane Austen novel. Mainly Pride and Prejudice.

    2. My nephew giving me a bouquet of flowers. (Alright, so they were weeds, actually– but he thought they were flowers, which makes it all the more special. LoL)

    3. Feeling the sunshine on my face.

  5. WV Grammy

    1. Sitting in the gazebo on a Saturday morning, or late in the evenings, and drinking a copy of coffee while taking in the sights and sounds of God’s creation.

    2. Watching the excitement of my grandchildren as they play (especially outside).

    3. Talking with my daughter on the phone as she describes things going on in her life – things the children are doing and learning, a new recipe she tried, friends she has made, ways God is providing for their family, sharing prayer requests, and the list could go on, and on, and on, just like our phone conversation. “:^)

    * I enjoy talking with my sons also but the conversations are much shorter and less detailed.

  6. Yeah, kind of like when we were in school and we’d come home and you’d ask, “How was your day?” The boys would shrug and say, “Ok.” And I would be like “Well, in first period . . . . ” hee hee

  7. 1. for my wife to become pregnant after over a year and a half of trying
    2. watching hummingbirds outside my dining room window
    3. picking vegetables and herbs out of the garden

  8. stuartdelony

    1. seeing my wife after a hard day of work
    2. the sound of my kids laughing or whispering to each other at night in bed after the lights are out.
    3. having a good AND deep conversation about faith with middle schoolers (yes it is possible… rare, but possible)

  9. Julie, I don’t think you sounded nerdy at all. I loved Neil Diamond’s Jazz Singer album. 🙂

    Jane, I love Jane Austen novels too.

    Noisedoctor, congratulations!

    Stuart, don’t tell my children, but I like that bedtime whispering too. I know they will have good memories of that time when they are grown, and I know this is when they are bonding and becoming friends.
